Friday fresh produce
These are my fresh fruit and vegies for the week which I buy from the Fyshwick markets. There are about 5 different produce stores, which are somewhere between a farmers' market and a grocery store. They sell fresh food almost exclusively, and the quality is very good because they buy directly from the Sydney wholesale markets.
The total was A$67 = US$50. We usually run out of fruit by day 5 or so then I have to top up at the local grocery store. The most expensive was the tray of St. Henry peaches at A$13 = US$10.
Fruit: St Henry peaches, Valencia oranges, 2 big bags of gala apples, bananas, grapes, rockmelon (canteloupe), 3 mangos, 5 limes.
Vegies: carrots, Lebanese cucumber, 2 eggplants, red onions, garlic, snow pea sprouts, lettuce, spring onions (scallions), green beans, 3 red capsicums (peppers), snow peas, celery.
